Meeting Description:

New Horizons in the Grammar of Raising and Control
LSA Linguistic Institute Workshop
Cambridge, MA
8-10 July 2005

Call for proposals

New Horizons in the Grammar of Raising and Control, supported in part by a
National Science Foundation grant, is a project consisting of a three-hour
panel at the January 2005 Linguistic Society of America annual meeting in
San Francisco, and a workshop at the July 2005 LSA Linguistic Institute at
Harvard/MIT. The topic of these meetings is the analysis of two grammatical
constructions, Raising and Control, which have been central to the development
of linguistic theory over the past 40 years. The aim of the January 2005
panel is to articulate a common set of research questions and formulate a
range of possible hypotheses which to be addressed at the July 2005
workshop. Issues addressed at the January panel will include (i) the scope
and limitations of movement accounts (covert and overt) in accounting for
these constructions, (ii) the role of semantics and syntax, respectively,
in the articulation of adequate analyses, (iii) the syntactic and semantic
properties of relevant null categories, and (iv) the cross-linguistic
typology of these constructions (e.g. forward and backward Raising and
Control). Workshop participants will be asked to address these and other
relevant issues, and are invited to bring new empirical data, especially
from understudied languages, into focus. Participation is sought both from
among theoretical linguists and from linguists whose research interests lie
in the interdisciplinary areas of language acquisition, historical
linguistics, sociolinguistics and language variation, and neurolinguistics.

ABSTRACT GUIDELINES:
Abstracts on topics dealing with the aspects of Raising and Control are
invited for 20 or 30 minute presentations (excluding discussion) or for
inclusion in a poster session. Abstracts should clearly indicate how they
will address questions raised at the January 2005 LSA Meeting Symposium on
Raising and Control (the abstracts for this symposium are accessible
http://www.cla.sc.edu/LING/GRC). Abstracts should be anonymous and no
longer than one page (an additional page for references and examples can be
included) with 1 inch margins and 12 point type. Submissions are limited to
one singly authored and one jointly authored abstract per author or two
jointly authored abstacts.

ABSTRACT DEADLINE:
March 1, 2005. Notification of inclusion in the program by April 15, 2005.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION:
Abstracts should be sent electronically to Stanley Dubinsky
(dubinsky at sc.edu) and William D. Davies (william-davies at uiowa.edu) as
attachments in PDF, RTF, Word, or Wordperfect format. If non-standard fonts
are required, use the 'embed fonts' option when you save the file. The
author's information (name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail
